2004 Honda Civic TYPE-R | £3,650

2004 Civic Type-R, I bought this car off a friend for a European road trip which the car was perfect for.. then with the intention of passing it onto my partner to drive after but she won’t let go of her current car. 

The car has 120k but I have replaced nearly every part on this car to have it sitting and driving like new and to be reliable on the trip which is was as it never missed a beat 

Here is a rough list of what has been replaced, I have receipts for everything and it totals around £2000 iirc.. all of the parts have only covered 1300miles approx 

- Genuine Timing chain and tensioner
-Valve clearances set 
- New rocker cover gasket set
- New iridium Plugs 
- Drivers side engine mount 
- Energy mount inserts 
- Millers Nano 5w40 oil with Hamp filter 
- Genuine MTF gearbox oil change
- RBF600 brake fluid flush 
- Genuine Honda coolant change
- New Brembo brake discs all around 
- New Brembo pads rear Ferodo front 
- Genuine new Sachs OE shock absorbers front and rear
- Eibach sportline springs 
- New top mounts 
- Eibach front camber bolts 
- New front wishbone bushes 
- New front ball joints 
- New front Drop links
- New rear drop links 
- New primary O2 sensor 
- New stainless exhaust system (not too loud)
- New aero wipers 
- Wheels refurbished in bright silver 

There is probably more that I can’t think of now but gives a general idea.  This is a great looking and driving car that I will genuinely miss, I looked at a lot of cars before choosing this one as they are getting very hard to find in good condition.
